On July 1, 1997 a new law went into effect concerning Sex Offender Registration and Notification. Under that law, convicted sex offenders must register for a period of time with their local county sheriffs. Sex offenders are classified as 1) sexually oriented offenders, 2) habitual sex offenders, and 3) sexual predators. The local sheriff's office is required to notify various entities when a sexual predator or a habitual sex offender, who the court determines is subject to community notification, moves into a specific geographical location.
